E DWINA had helped Grandmother
all winter, and her preparation for
icollegfe was neglected. Therefore,
Grandmother musing, tried to find a
way ont. On the table lay an advertis
ing circular pointing the advantage
of a certain summer school. Grnnd
mother did some silent figuring; then
■he laid her glasses aside to interview
Rosie Smith. Rosie had come to

ly if there might not be a desirable
hoarding place nearby. Grandmother
Brown suggested her own pretty home
di ipbOardlng place. Miss Rosl«Smith
accepted and hurried back to the ad
joining city to fetch her luggage. She
brought a recommendation of charac
ter to Grandmother from a minister.
The cottage was all that could be
desired, and much of the simple
housework was accomplished by the
younger women, after Edwina's day at
school. The white-haired woman, sit
ting In the tiny porch that afforded a
view of lake and campus smiled con
tentedly at the merry conversation of
the workers inside.
"The youngest professor Is such a
dear," Edwina was saying, "the girls
are all ernzy about him, he is so sort
of sorrowfully romantic. And he looks

Just touching his temples. And he has
the kindliest eyes, Rosie. Nell Winn,
whose father is head of the whole col
lege works, was telling me today that
this Professor Wainright has always
had the wildest ambition to write a
great book. And Nell's father says,
the things he has written are simply
wonderful. But since he was a very
yonng man, Richard Wainright was
left with the care of an invalid sister;
■he could not even walk. He loved
her dearly, and used at evening, after
his work was done, to carry her up
and down the garden In his arms. All
his time was devoted to her care, and
he had to take up what clerkships he
could get to keep things going. You
see, before this frail sister Lily was
left to him he had to support his
mother, who later died. Well, all the
time he was clerking and doing things
about the house he managed one way
or another to get to night school.
When Lily died, not very long ugo, he

the Jolllest companion, Rosie; you
must meet him. Whenever any of us
get balled up with our problems we
are not afraid to take them to Pro
fessor Wainright ; he makes things as
clear as day."
Edwina introduced Rosie Smith to
the professor the following afternoon
when, quite by accident, the three
met on the college street. Rosie was
on her way to Lakeview park with a
hook, the professor, it happened, was
also on his way to that favorite spot,
with some problems to work out. They
sat together on a park bench and
talked. That Rosie found the pro
fessor interesting may be said; that
the professor found the sweet-faced
sympathetic listener interesting, is also
a fact. Both Rosie and Richard Wain
right, however, were surprised to find
themselves confiding in each other
their secret ambitions—the sorrows of
their past.
Edwina began after a few weeks to

Washington.—The surroundings of
Washington lack the cozy chalets, the
snow-crowned mountains and the ro
bust Alpine climbers and singers that
are infallible as guide posts in intro
ducing the traveler to the heart of
Switzerland, but the neighborhood of
the national capital boasts one typical
ly Swiss earmark—it is the Beltsville
milch goat herd owned and operated
by Uncle Sam and one of the best
Tom Thumb dairy projects of its kind
in the country.
Washington has benefited markedly
as the result of Uncle Sam's entrance
Into the goat-raising business
sixteen years ago, remarks the Wash
ington Star, for much of the nutri
tious and easily digestible goat's milk
produced at the national farm, about
sixteen miles from the White House,
has been used in co-operative research
at the diet kitchen and Georgetown
university hospital for the treatment
of puny infants and Invalids suffering
from malnutrition.
Disciples of Sanitation.
The plutocratic milking goat is the
exact antithesis of the ordinary tin
can alley goat. The blue blooded goats
are disciples of sanitation. They will
eat nothing but clean and pure food.
They require sanitary stables and
shaggy overconrs as spotless and im
maculate as those of the most partic
ular "tabbies" <>f the feline world.
The governin' nt goat farm features
a herd of 40 gr de and pure bred Tog
genburg and Su.men milch goats of all
sizes and ages.
The average milch doe weighs be
tween 110 and 115 pounds, yet despite
her diminutive size she produces from
seven to ten times her weight In nu
tritious milk each year. The average
milch doe In the Beltsville herd pro
duces from 3.5 to 5 quarts of milk
daily during the peak production of her
nine months' annual milking period.
The best doe In the herd has a record
production of 1,287 pounds of milk and
65 pounds of butterfat for one lacta
tion period, while the average output
of the entire herd of 24 milch does Is
well over the 900-pound mllk-produc
tlon mark.
Under present conditions it costs
about 10 cents a day to feed the 1111
putian cows their regular rations of
alfalfa and clover hay and their grain
allowances of cracked corn, oats, bran
and oil meal. During the grazing sea

Overseas, large quantities of goat's

Unless artificially colored, the butter
made from goat's milk is very white
and resembles lard In appearance.
Tests made at Beltsville, however,
have proved Irrefutably that a good
quality of butter can be produced
when the goats' milk and cream are
properly handled.
The Beltsville herd of goats was es
tablished In 1908 when the Initial at
tempts were made to cross 30 common
brush goats brought to Washington
from Alabama with pure bred goats
from Switzerland. The breeding ex

Dog Kills $1,000 Fox
Caught Stealing Hens
Vancouver, Wash.—A commotion in
his chicken yard at night caused R. H.
Miller of Fruit Valley to Investigate,
and he arrived in time to see a blue
fox leaving the yard with a chicken

after the fox and killed It before Mr.
Miller could Interfere.
Dr. R. J. Mercer claimed the pelt,
the fox was one of three that
escaped from the Mercer fox farm
some time ago. The mate to the one
killed was captured the following night
at Hazeldell by some boys and the
third animal Is believed to be In the

chickens and ducks have disappeared
recently. The fox killed was valued
at $ 1 , 000 .
